Russia's entities can return to the procedure for appointing governors. Currently, "United Russia" members are discussing with the regions the proposals by the Institute of Socio-Political Research RAS (ISPR), among which there is the idea of appointing heads of entities. In Dagestan, there was announced an initiative to replace the election with the previous model of formation of regional authorities, in order not to create tension. The Big Caucasus has found out whether these fears are justified, and will the introduction of different electoral procedures lead to the disunity in Russian society.
The discussion is being conducted in expert groups in private mode, the Kommersant writes.
In the "United Russia" they noted that the most multinational republic, such as Dagestan, Karachai-Cherkessia, Kabardino-Balkaria, Kalmykia, Tatarstan, Bashkiria, need the adjustment of election mode. Open discussion and careless statements made public may result in conflict, said the edition source. "At first, we need to develop an idea, and then push it".
State Duma deputy from Dagestan Gadzhimet Safaraliev told "Kommersant" about the idea of return to the appointment of regional leaders. He noted that the system of direct election "includes nuances that can create tension". "They should unify the regions", Safaraliev added. State Duma deputy from Karachay-Cherkessia Michael Starshinov in turn assured the edition that he had held a discussion with the participation of the National Assembly members, members of the electoral commission, mayors, civil society organizations and representatives of the "Popular Front". "There was an opinion that we should not artificially highlight specific entities", concluded the deputy.
